My oldest son has a fantastic little group of Pokemon loving friends so I was excited to host the Pokemon Party from House Party. We received a box of seven toys which was great because all together we had seven guests. The box was a little uneven, as some of the packs were of the smaller Pokemon characters, and the other boxes had better toys, so to keep the kids from getting mad, I had each kid draw a number and they got the present that corresponded with that number. Everyone wanted the coveted Mewtew but of course there was only one. After some initial disappointed, everyone ended up being happy with their toys and happily played together with them. Surprisingly, my three year old was the most thrilled with his, and I thought he liked Pokemon the least! The box we received included : Throw 'n' Pop Poke Ball Duel Set which was a highly sought after toy because it was the throwing ball which is really cool. It can be reloaded and thrown into battle. The rest of the kids received an assortment of other figures. Some were medium sized, and like I said the Mewtew was the most coveted figure of all the children at our party. All in all the party was a blast, and the toys will be much enjoyed in the future.
Even though we didn't receive the Z-Ring, it looks like something that my kids would love, and I am definitely looking into it for Christmas! It is available for pre-sale on the Tomy website, and I am thinking I will need to snatch this up now before it is sold out in the holiday shopping madness.
